Things I would love to be able to do with the N8 are

* using my E51 as a remote control for the N8,

* browsing the web (via native browser or Opera) at 1280x720 on HDMI, and

* connecting the N8 to the older TV sets that still populate so many hotel rooms.

M.

I am sure you can. It has standard TV out as well (that exists on the current Nokia phones) apart from HDMi out. The TV does need to have composite ports though and those have been around on TVs since a long time now. So unless you visit a hotel that has really ancient TVs, you should not have a problem.

There *is* absolutely Bluetooth mouse support in Symbian^3 - code-wise anyway. I have also heard several reports from current N8 users on Twitter saying that they've tried it and it works.

Bluetooth mouse support. Folks - it's there - check the video around 3:55 onwards - there's a mouse pointer being moved around bottom left, no question. And it's present sitting on the leftmost album cover from 3:22.

> from current N8 users on Twitter

Who are these people exactly? Presumably Nokia folk, Symbian folk, those testing for the operators?

Yes, some Nokia employees do have them to use at the moment.

Vid rec and call

"At the risk of asking a stupid question: what happens if somebody calls you while you're in the middle of shooting an amazing scene with the HD recording capabilities of your N8? Is the call sent to voicemail or is the video recording interrupted?"

-- Good question. As far as I remember my N97 puts the calls in the "unanswered" list while filming. One know is that I have never experienced being interrupted during video-filming - if it is by pure chance or not, I can't really remember.

1. Can anyone confirm if it is possible to browse the web at full HD on HDMI? Technically, it shouldnt be a problem but is this a native feature of the broser?

2. I dont think there is the regular output in the box. Thats what I read in another post: "In the box you can find Nokia N8, a charger, a USB cable / USB microphone, In-Ear Headphones, HDMI adapter"
